You Are My All

When I felt really torn, not sure of what I needed,

To the right and left I turned,

And yet I never found it.

Then I heard a still small voice, saying,

"Come, I have what you need."

So then I struggled, and made the choice

To follow You, wherever You would lead,

So now...

When I don't know what to do,

I will turn to You.

You're the answer I'm looking for,

You are my Lord.

And when I don't know where to turn,

I still know what I've learned,

That You are my strength, my comfort,

My song,

You are my all...

One for All - Lyrics

Verse 1:
Lord, I was so very young, had no clue what I'd just begun.
Chose the road of change and trial, and I followed you as a child.
You gave me faith to believe in the things I couldn't see.
"Soon the war will be over and we will be free!
Keep on fighting, brave soldiers, your eyes are on the King!"
I was so naive. But
   You kept on saying I'd have to be strong
   And I had no idea why but still I went on.
   With no earthly protection, went on to perfection, cuz
   Something kept bidding me go on.
Verse 2:
No, this hasn't been easy. What's been happening to me?
From a child to a man - I can hardly understand.
It's been a challenge for me to take what you were whispering:
"When you're lacking in something, I don't want you to hide.
Don't find strength in another - develop it inside."
To you alone I cried, saying,
   "Show me how to be complete in you.
   For this war to be won, what would you have me do?
   Lord, the warriors are falling. If this is your calling -
   If nobody's winning, then it's on.
Verse 3:
I've been wrestling with you like I never thought I'd need to.
You have me face my own self, as I follow you through hell.
You are my challenge and my strength, both my trial and my faith.
Cast out every distraction! I want to hear your call.
I've no reason to fight if I can't give it my all.
Let nothing be my fall.
   I have been learning to fight like a pro,
   And I know you will teach me all I need to know.
   Though it seems I'm mistaken and all have forsaken me -
   Something still bids me to go on.
   Something still bids me to go on.
If you are striving to follow the Lord and you ask yourself if you can handle the war - maybe you should ask who you're fighting for.
